|Join us for a guided walking tour of Prague Castle, the No.1 tourist attraction in Prague.|
Visit the ancient seat of the Kings of Bohemia and enjoy magnificent views over the whole city.
This sightseeing tour is mostly on foot (Prague Castle is pedestrianised).
After meeting your guide near Charles Bridge, we stroll though the cobbled streets of the Lesser Town, then take a tram ride up to Prague Castle.
The guide escorts us into the castle via the shortest security queue, so we can begin our tour.
Prague Castle is an intriguing mix of squares and buildings, including palaces, state apartments, churches, great halls, a monastery, viewing towers, fortifications, and museums and art galleries.
The guide brings the whole complex to life, explaining the castle's turbulent history, and its most important royal and presidential connections.
We see St. Vitus Cathedral, where the coronation of Kings and Queens took place. We admire the grand architecture of the Old Royal Palace. And we see St. George's Basilica, founded in 920 AD, the best-preserved Romanesque church in Prague.
We also visit the squares and see Golden Lane (Zlatá ulička); dating from the 15th century, skilled artisans lived and worked in this area, creating goods for the inhabitants of Prague Castle. This is where the mystical art of alchemy was practised!
Finally, because Prague Castle sits on a hill, we take in the stunning views over the city.
Prague Experience walking tours are led by professional, licensed tourist guides.
The tour is in English.
